Unfortunately Walsall might just be bad enough on the road to keep GM in a job, assuming DMac hasn't seen the light come 7.45pm on Tuesday that is.

The weather could regretfully save McCann's skin if the match is called off.

Well that two Posh "fans" (so far) who want us to lose on Tuesday night.

Not so, the aim is to be rid of the incompetent McCann. Posh cannot go on drawing matches for ever.

But surely there are better ways of getting rid of a manager than hoping we don't win.

We are not winning, nothing to do with hoping!

Actually, I do want us to lose this game.

I want it to beat the weather, for us to lose and for GM to be sacked before next weekend.

Sorry, but that's just how I feel.

I'm happy to forfeit a one-off game which will have no impact on anything for the greater good.

Use your eyes people! Don't listen to what you're being told.

A lot of the players have started sliding back into old, bad ways, always a good indicator that all is not right behind the scenes.

JB is berating himself for every blunder, MM is going down holding an ankle half a dozen times a game, JM is telling others where they should have played the ball, Taff is back to being 'injured'.

Wait for that injury list to grow over the next few weeks, as long as GM stays at the helm. It will happen.

All that's missing from last season is McGee berating his defence the whole game and Bozzy dropping his head.

He seems to think a manager's job is telling the players, first to "Listen" then advising them what we "Need" to do. Just like he does to Swanny et al.
That's not good enough, he has to plan how to do it. The players are young men, they need to be told How he wants them to do it.
I have a suspicion he is not respected in the dressing room. In fact that shows on the pitch. He's DM's cheap option, there are better in house candidates who need filtering out from the tea lady to someone who has the guts to tell the boss where he can put his interference. IMO.

Never mind the rest of that post, accusing Taff of feigning injury is frankly disgraceful, disrespectful and unsurprisingly total BS.
The lad is not playing well but he pulled up with what was clearly a pulled hammy, it was made worse by non of the medical staff being anywhere to be seen and him having to be virtually helped off by the officials!

You'd actually garner a bit of respect from at least some of us if you reconsidered that particular comment mate imo.

He may well have done a hammy and you're right to pull me up on it, but he does have a 'sicknote' reputation, albeit I can't disclose my source.
Source my arse.

It's not difficult to count matches played/missed.

As you rightly intimated some players miss matches when things not going well, personally although they have many faults as a group I'm not sure there are many in this squad.
Some, actually one squeal like a girl but still manages t get through most games despite the broken leg(s).

I appreciate your acceptance you may have gone ott somewhat although the begrudging way you accept it does you no credit mate....imo.
